@Adams_bee:

I’ve never heard a success story with replica returns, just so you know. The shipping alone would be $50+ and they never refund that, and you’ll be lucky to get a refund at all.

Some bees on the board went the replica route. I suggest doing a little more research before making such a big gamble. 🙂 Good luck.

Some of the more popular dressmakers are Jasmine Bridal and Dressilyme. I personally used IeIe Bridal, however, she’s located in the US. My dressmaker was able to get my lace spot on.

Here was my inspiration:

Here was the result:
